Spring has definitely sprung in Mrs. Bush’s second grade class! They recently celebrated her annual “Bee Day” where she adorns her hive with real flowers and has her “worker bees” engage in wonderful activities to learn about the life of bees to include the parts of a flower, pollination, life cycle of plants and insects, habitats, food webs, the parts of an insect (using bees as an example), bee jobs and behaviors! Happy Spring!
We had such a special treat on Friday! One of our fifth graders in Mrs. Durante’s class and a first grader in Mrs. Schrack’s class played a drummers call with their father and the Civil War reenactment group! We are so lucky to be in such a historical part of Williamsburg and even luckier to have such talented students and families!
Two of our beloved staff members and one cherished former staff member at Matthew Whaley were inducted into Delta Kappa Gamma recently: Beth Hagy, Diane Huebner, and Linda Sidebottom. Here is a brief description of Delta Kappa Gamma:
